August 20, 2013: PIKE Technologies has introduced a sealed sample chamber for the MIRacle, Single Reflection ATR accessory. The high pressure clamp with chamber attaches to MIRacle diamond, ZnSe or Ge crystal plates allowing the complete assembly to be moved from the spectrometer to a protective environment for sample loading and handling. Typical applications include studies of toxic or chemically aggressive solids and powders.
The chamber is made of stainless steel and is sealed against the crystal plate with a chemically resistant O-ring. The chamber contains an internal, spring-loaded anvil that compresses the sample against the ATR crystal at a pre-set, clutch-controlled setting. In addition to the new sealed sample chamber, multiple other options including temperature control, flow-through, and special clamps are available for the PIKE MIRacle ATR accessory.
